No air conditioning as described. The front desk did not accept a Credit Card for payment as described. Don't advertise things you don't have and/or aren't working. We felt extremely mislead and didn't get much for sleep the entire stay.


Worst hostel I have ever stayed at. The room smelled terrible, showers were dirty, mold and mildew on the shower doors, hair on my bedding. The wifi was horrible and even the few minutes it did work the connection was very slow. Other guests had the same experience with the wifi too. The doorbell for guests to ring after hours was very loud and annoying. Should only ring for night worker to hear in lobby. I could not wait to leave this place.


The staff were really great and are very flexible - I arrived early in the morning and there was somewhere secure to leave my bags and they invited me to enjoy the breakfast and use the wi-fi while my room was prepared.

Needs lockers in rooms. Rooms were very noisy without earplugs. Breakfast was excellent! Location was perfect.


Fantastic location, so close to all main attractions. Lovely, really helpful staff. Room was pleasant but the hotel isn't very soundproof (it's a creaky old building) so you can hear people in corridors/stairs a lot but didn't pose much of an issue for sleeping (we didn't go in peak season though.) Excellent value for money though would recommend staying here! Side note - not accessible for disabled people as there's a lot of stairs to rooms and no lifts.


When I compare the price İt is a good place. And the workers is good people. Maybe breakfeast should be better than now.

Very helpful staff, old building, poor breakfast but very good location.


Apart from its location and staff which is good, the rest is terrible. Bad bed, bad WiFi, room was very hot with little ventilation, very tired setting. Hostel of last resort.


First, the staff are really nice and friendly! The room is quite old. And in the double beds room, there is only one plug! It is really not enough for travelers. Besides, we wanted to take shower around 11pm, but there was no warm water.

The hostel is located in a really gd place, everything is in walking distance. The hostel is clean and comfy but sometimes the wifi is not working too well.


Cheap and right next to monastiraki station. Staff wasn't that friendly or helpful besides the girl from Russia. She was amazing! No frills type of place but convenient location. Wifi was temperamental


-Location: best area of Athens. Close to metro and 2 minutes away from the touristic zone -Cleanliness: great -Staff: super nice staff that helped with metro and places to eat. Funny too! -Facilities: wifi is good, but if you also get your room in the fourth floor don't expect wifi to reach. However they provide computers for free. Bathroom was the only real negative point, since it was really small and the shower's curtain was too short and all the water came out. OVERALL: great! Stay here!


Amazing place, really clean and quiet.


Excelent location and price for what you get. Recomend also the travel agency they have there. Only bad thing was the bed (for a couple, double private room)- terrible, noisy, almost broke..


We needed to leave our key at the desk when ever leaving the hostel. I found it weird that we got the key back just by saying the room number, they didn't check if it was really our room. Staff was nice, altough sometimes we got misleading or even wrong information from one staff member. Hostel has a good location and breakfast was nice, but don't expect too much from it.


When we arrived, our room was unkempt, there were dirty sheets and towels, and there wasn't a functional safe


Everything was ok during my stay. The only problem is about wi-fi it was very slow and allways disconnected. And shared bathroon at 5th floor was super tiny. The staff was very friendly especially eutophian guy. And the old man probably he is an owner or manager. Thank you for their good hosting ...


Great Stay in Fivos. I booked a single room, it was small, but at a good price. Receptionists have been really kind and helpful. You can also leave your luggage for all day long (they locked them).


Hostel was good located in downtown and hotel staff is nice and helpful. However our room was very small with old equipment. Breakfast was quite poor. If you need something just for night is ok, but dont expect much.


The hostel is in a really fun and cool area, and it took us barely 15 minutes to walk to the Acropolis. It's definitely in a noisy area, but it's safe and clean. Free breakfast is included in your stay, and the staff were so so helpful. Both staff members that we interacted with were incredibly helpful and friendly, and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed and knew where we were going!
